Peppermint Soda

Directed by Diane Kurys
Year: 1977

Language: French (English subtitles)

In the vein of such classic coming of age films as Francois Truffaut’s THE 400 BLOWS, Diane Kurys’s PEPPERMINT SODA captures a particular moment in the tumultuous life and development of young people. Anne (Eléonore Klarwein) and Frederique (Odile Michel) are sisters entering their teen years in 1963 France, torn between divorced parents and struggling with the confines of their strict school.
